About the Book
The planet may or may not be dying, humans may or may not be at risk of extinction, and American wild horses may or may not be at the 11th hour before they go the way of the Dodo. Here is Manda Kalimian’s literary shake and wake to say, “Honey, it’s even worse than that.” The author decided to strip away the noise and share her journey to reveal a simple truth—the frozen, immutable facts which foretell our destiny.
These emburdened and inspired pages will unveil the tears, blood, and horse-sweat that offer an encrypted key to our very salvation. Ok, you think that’s a bit dramatic. Cast it aside and imagine you are in need of personal empowerment and permission to unleash your true self in honor of your soul’s weeping desire to break free. When you meet Manda Kalimian, you will be swept up in her spirit—her inimitable power to love and understand. Your vexations will be laid to rest with her inherent peace. Yet, she will challenge you to be accountable to our home and to take a stand against the abhorrent challenges that not only face us but pound at the door, beseeching us to act or wither. Even men will benefit from the power of this triumphant woman who dares to step forward and claim a future that she knows—in her emboldened soul—is not only achievable but what was intended. Seat yourself, stop the world, and let Manda’s words wash over you while you reconsider our future. But buckle up, babe—Manda Kalimian is a true believer, and she was Born to Rewild.
“The federal government spends hundreds of millions in tax dollars to imprison wild horses. They can be rewilded into native lands. This is just common sense.”
~Congressman Steve Israel—Cornell University Institute of Politics and Global Affairs
“There are simple solutions to complex questions around why flora, fauna, and animals are in crisis. This book speaks to the heart of the matter.”
~Dr. Ross MacPhee—Senior Curator, American Museum of Natural History
“Without the horse, we are going to forget how to be humans. When that happens, we are cancer to the habitat. This book offers a solution to humanity.”
~Moses Brings Plenty—America Indian Liaison, Cana Foundation
“This book was a tonic for my heart and soul. Manda’s words helped me make sense of my own journey because strong women need other strong women. We sharpen each other like iron sharpens iron.
~Jacqueline Kapur—Entrepreneur, founder, and corporate CFO
“The natural world will survive in some form—but we may not. We must rewild to rebalance the environment.”
~Sir David Attenborough
A Message from the Author
We live in a time of crushing change and unrest. The world is at a turning point, and we with it. Our individual lives and journeys are all interconnected. It is a moment in time to stop and listen to the voices within ourselves and what they are saying about our individual roles at this time. What can we do to ensure the health of our planet and civilization, as we know it? What will we teach our children, who will they be, and what are we leaving them?
When something so powerful and important resonates within, it is our responsibility as humans to follow that voice and calling. This is one such story. My love and passion for our wild horses have led me on a journey of self-empowerment, realization, and rewilding. It is through this journey that I am learning who I am and who I can be. This journey awaits us all if we choose to open our hearts to hear our innate reason and who we want to be while discovering who we really are.
I hope that by sharing my journey with you that you will be open to seeing your calling.
There are no rules, and there are no prerequisites to finding your path. You just have to ask to be shown; that is your first step. So, join me on my rewilding journey to save our wild horses. It’s been a crazy ride, and it’s not over!
